Home Care Reviews for Home Helpers of Greater Milwaukee

Some of the caregivers that we had were not appropriate for my loved one's needs. They would just let him sit in front of the TV instead of engaging with him. I should have been more vocal when the caregiver was not working for us.

It has reduced the number of days that my sister and I have to do things for our mom. It is helping our family. They are all pleasant staff, and they have good communication as a company.

The caregivers cleaned the house. It was alright. I had nothing against the company or the service. It was okay. The caregivers were pleasant and handy to have.

Since I'm 96 and can't do anything, I really appreciate this young lady. She just does the vacuuming and washes the kitchen and bathroom floor. They are super perfect. I like them because they seem to be very efficient, know what they are doing, and let you know if there is a change. I get the feeling that they are good managers.

I would have been all alone and have to take care of him. He was very sick, and I had to go tour and do chores. The girls were very nice. We had no problems. They know my son, and they were very nice. I liked them, and the girls were good.

Our current caregiver is outstanding. We've had a few different caregivers. They could make sure the training is consistent through the caregivers. It comes down to the personalities of the caregivers. It's really individual. Not all caregivers are the same, and some are better than others. It's a matter of finding the fit caregiver wise.

I think they should give their caregivers hygiene classes because one of the caregivers that I rode with in their car was very dirty, I did not feel very comfortable. I wouldn't recommend them but the last two people they sent were very dirty.

It has helped the family to have outside people coming in for our time and for my mother to have contact with other people besides her family. With the contact that I have with the people from the agency, they are open to having you call and are concerned about the care.

They do just about everything. They provide total care. I think that they are flexible in the scheduling and the are pretty responsive to my concerns.

It allows me to get out of the house and do things I need to do. We have had a lot of turnover with people so they could have more consistency.

They took my dad to surgery early in the morning when I could not do it. I liked working with the caregiver.

They went from the time they were tending to my wife, and they took care of her. They did not take care of me originally, but they are taking care of me now. I like their attitudes, and they are quick to assimilate themselves into my family. They are well trained.

The services give me the freedom to go out and shop, feeling comforted about the care that my loved one receives, without worrying about them. The caregivers have been very excellent.

They help the most by being behind me, and they knew what would happen to me before I did. I really like that they are caring towards me.

My husband was the one they were caring for mostly, and they were there to provide medical care. The nurse help was the best part about it for us. I have no reason not to recommend them. The service was prompt.

They could keep people more steady so that we could have the same people. They seem to change people very often. We have been with them for two years, and we have had five different caregivers.

They have been quite helpful because they are here to provide extra help to my daughter, who provides care for my husband and me. When my daughter has to get the children ready for school, they are here to help us. I like that they do whatever I ask them to do.

Most of the caregivers are fantastic. They allow my mom to stay in Milwaukee, and it allows me to keep my life in Minnesota. Otherwise, I'd have to be there with her, and it's hard to keep a job from that distance. There has been one issue. There were a large number of caregivers sent to my loved one and that freaked her out. She has memory issues, and she was constantly waking up to a new stranger.

They are helping me a lot. Since I don't drive they take me places I have to go. When we get home from shopping they get everything put away for me in a very orderly way. They are polite, efficient, very friendly, they do everything you want them to do and are there when you need them.

They give me a break from care giving. They're always on time, and at least one out of the three do an excellent job as far as doing what we ask them to do care wise and home wise.

It has taken the errands and some of the smaller things, like driving, away from me. It has freed me up from those things. They respond quickly and the care has been really good.

They regularly check up on my mom. Without that, we would have to make drastic changes. They have also been remarkable and made many recommendations to increase her care. My mom has been nasty, and these poor people at Home Helpers are trying to help.

She's not too receptive of it, but hopefully eventually she'll get used to it. It makes our life easier because we know that she's safe. They're friendly and they seem to do what's expected of them.

They could reduce the amount of turnover for staffing. The facility he is at requires that he receives extra care. The care allowed us to avoid a disruptive incident. My dad has dementia, so he needs more steady care than a lot of turnover.

One of their caregivers goes above and beyond. They are reliable. They help take care of my loved one. They have enabled my loved one to stay in assisted living as opposed to being in full nursing care.

All of the workers have treated my mom like she is their own mom. They are so kind and trusting. I know my mom and dad are in good hands, so I can do other things.

They've been coming in for the last three weeks to help me get ready and they've been great. They're always willing to help. They make my life easier. The floors are picked up, things I can't reach are put away, and a lot of little stuff like that is taken care of.

I would tell someone that Home Helpers is very easy to communicate with and have quality caregivers they employ. Knowing my loved one is receiving quality care helps elevate stress. It has improved my loved one's health.

Home Helpers is prompt and well scheduled. Most of the time, the aides are well trained. Home Helpers mainly makes life easier by befriending my loved one and acknowledging her as an equal. They are very caring for her.

I like Home Helpers because the caregivers have all received the same training. Home Helpers helps my husband, which is a help to me. They allow me to go out by myself to do grocery shopping.

Home Helpers meets our needs that we have right now. The services allow my loved one to get to church and to her exercise classes because she needs someone to drive her.

Home Helpers is on time, helpful, and cheerful. I would be housebound without Home Helpers and have minimal contact outside of the house. Home Helpers acts as my drivers, too.

I would tell a friend that Home Helpers is very dependable and flexible overall. Home Helpers comes every Thursday, so they allow me to go out while they care for my husband on those days.

I am totally pleased with Home Helpers. Home Helpers is very programmed and performs professionally. Home Helpers makes life easier for me because the caregiver will re-wrap the client's legs, which I can't do.

Home Helpers is a good agency because they listen to what I say and correct things that don't work immediately. The services are helpful because I am not physically able to do everything my husband's care requires, so the caregivers do it.

I would hesitate to recommend Home Helpers because they aren't covered by insurance. Home Helpers' services gave me a good start in coming home and getting situated.

Sometimes the caregivers are good, and sometimes they are not. You have to keep in communication with the office to find a replacement and let them know what is going on. The service does not have much of an impact because Home Helpers comes when my mom is sleeping. They may give her a drink or snack.

My daughter and her husband knew of Home Helpers and got them for me. I like the girl that they sent. I have no complaints towards them. I've been happy with them around to help me. They're very good and I'm satisfied with their service.

My folks moved to an Assisted Living Community and been there since October 2011. My folks have two different situations going on. My mom has dementia and is physically fine. My dad is 35 mentally but physically he can not walk 10 steps without losing his breath. Around summer, we knew we needed a greater level of support in their Assisted Living Community. Home Helpers sends in a caregiver 7 days a week, 12 hours a day to help my parents maintain their apartment, companionship, personal support such as dressing and showering and create different levels of activities for them. They all do such a great job in helping them get through their day and we have become very dependent on them very quickly. They provide just the right caregivers and that isn't always easy scheduling as we do need them 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. We did interview several agencies in the area but what made our decision is having Tim and Laura. Tim is extremely dedicated and provides just the right customer experience and Laura is a register nurse and Laura provides another perspective to my parents care. We are treated like we are part of their family and they are there for us every step of the way. The level of service exceeds our expectations!

I have Tammy and I'm well satisfied with her. She does very good work. She goes right ahead and I don't have to tell her what to do. She knows what are things to be done. My cardiologist suggested I might like Home Helpers and thought I'd give them a try. At the time, they were just starting their business. Tammy comes to my place twice a week and helps me around with cleaning and laundry. She's been with me ever since I came out from rehab last April of this year. She represents the company very well.

They were recommended to us by the minister of our church. I have been incredibly impressed with Home Helpers company. They have some wonderful caregivers. They really improved the quality of my mom and dad's lives. My mom is 90 and my dad is 95. Dad is in mid-stage Alzheimer's disease. My mother has many physical problems. She fell and broke her legs a year ago or so with a spinal fracture. Since then she had a lot of mobility problems. The caregivers take care of my mom and dad from 9 in the evening until 9 in the morning. They provide them exercise in the morning.

I know the Bireley family. I have known them for years, so I was very comfortable using their service. I just know how they work and raise a family and did other businesses. I felt more comfortable using somebody I know than another firm which may have been in business longer than Home Helpers. My parents had no complaints at all with them. It worked out real fine between the caregivers and my parents. I have them in the morning 5 days a week. They make sure my parents are up and have breakfast. I've set out their morning pills and the caregivers make sure they are taken. They take care of their lunch. I am very happy and very comfortable having them. I don't worry about being away from home. We have been with them since they started the company in April.
